%. president obama's pathway to re-election is difficult even with the latino and african voters across the country. why is president obama 36% among white voters and what can he do to up that number? >> i think that he needs to focus on job creation and lay out what he did to save the country from the great depression. certainly emphasize on what he did to stave the automobile industry. that's what is holding blue cole sxar white voters in the state of ohio. i have to tell you this, luke. only in mitt romney's mind is a path where he sits at 206 electoral votes right now and the president sits at 246, more favorable position to be in. we have got to get to 270. that's the part of the campaign we are in right now. any normal person would prefer to be in a posture where even according to nbc we are at about 246 right now. we are ahead in ohio. we are very strong in virginia. where we have a great cincinnati candidate in tim kaine and will win nevada. the only thing the folks in romneyville are doing is they are moving forward with a confidence gain. they are walking around talking about

. the president has been able to stay even with romney by winning big margins with latino voters and leads among them, 63/34 in colorado and winning ready for this with latino voters in neve day by 74/23. anyway the race for colorado tighteninged. why has it become such a close race? romney has gained among key groups since we last polled a month ago by 14 points a month ago, 54/40. it's been cut in half and the president only leads by 7 points. now, the president led independents, 50-39. now, that 11-point margin is a virtual draw and romney is up a point among independents. leader of the marist poll joins me now. colorado, we sit here, we talk about ohio, lee, we talk about -- but colorado, tell me this, what was the raw vote difference between the two because obviously statistically 48/48, a total tie? >> single digits. one handful. i think what's interesting, we talked about ohio throughout the campaign as being the bellwether, but, you know, obama is sort of getting in ohio what he got last time. and that may be because of the car industry and the whole auto bailout. around the rest of the

and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a whole has become more hispan hispanic. colorado is 18% latino. that's up from 11.8% in 2000. the question is whether they cast ballots this time around. so how do voters in denver's swing suburbs known for being independen

spends talking about for two weeks. african american and latino voters are very important. i want every american to vote. they are not voting for mitt romney. when you look at numbers like are you more favorable about this candidate the president and romney have parallel numbers among white voters. these huge margins are because overwhelmingly 78 to 4 african americans are saying less likely. if you are losing 100% of the vote it doesn't effect the ballot. so the difference in this poll is you have to look at the valid coalition compared to the numbers you are using from this survey. that explains how you can have the negative numbers from romney and have him going up in the poll compared to two weeks ago mpt. >> i want to go to candidate qualities thmpt president has leads on looking after the middle class, dealing with immigration and medicare. single digit on health care, being a good commander in chief, foreign policy and taxes. of all of those qualities, the two that would concern you the most if you were mitt romney? >> the one you didn't mention is mitt romney is ahead on changin

in this election than republican constituencies than key ones. seniors versus voters, whether it's latinos, there has been this issue. so, has that been the strategy, trying to buck up the base? >> let me say a few things. first, national polls, the president has always done worse. >> i buy there is a split between those two. >> the president has generally done better in swing states because of the amount of resources. so, i don't think we should democratic panic, should not occur because of that and i think we could feel pretty positive. even with an even national poll, president's taken a hard hit and i think he's ahead in swing states still. on this issue of energy and enthusiasm, i think there was a challenge for the president the month before the election, the debate, that people thought the campaign was over and you were seeing people not as energized now. now, i wouldn't have had that debate performance to get them energized, but i think -- >> that is some interesting lemonade you're making over there. is there any sugar in it at all? >> i think as tight election, you'll see people

of numbers that it's altering that chemistry. latinos and african-american voters are staying in more than we've seen, and i think that's sort of counterbalancing the others. we're not seeing a big difference in all these states between registered and likely, especially not in ohio. that's a special case with 18% having already voted. as you said, 63% for obama. huge difference in the campaign affecting the chemistry of ohio. >> and very quickly, i want to do one other number that i want to bring up. who's better able to handle the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in th

think the latino vote is going to come out strong. >> enthusiasm issue. is it going to catch up? a problem for obama? >> if anything, it's the door to door knocking we're seeing that people are saying, oh, you actually care. >> do you believe nevada demographically impossible for romney to win? >> demographically impossible for him to win. >> that's what i keep hearing. >> i will go with truly shameless and say my mother's birthday is tomorrow. happy birthday. i'm her won and only son. if i forgot, i'd be in real trouble. >> happy birthday to mary elle listen elizabeth. a good friend of mine major tom kennedy was killed in afghanistan by a suicide bomber. we set up a charity. it's called kennedy's angels. we've raised over $400,000. it's a great cause. >> okay. thank you to our shortened panel here. tomorrow on the show, we're going to have the brand new battleground polls for you. the midwestern test. coming up next, chris jansing. bye-bye. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. the giants don't have a mascot! ohhh! eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chick
